Collins Big Cat Arabic Reading Programme is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11.
The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins.
This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 5 books are for children who are ready to read stories with more challenging word patterns or non-verbal sentences with 2 or 3 words, and with total support through illustrations and extensive use of repetition.
Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends to ensure the focus remains on reading core words. A little girl is in her garden. Children who are her neighbours and friends are outside her gate, and they want to know if she has toys they can play with.
She has everything they want in her garden, and soon she opens the gates for her friends to join her for a fun morning.
